Format: Paperback
Having read and thoroughly enjoyed The Genesis Secret, I was looking forward to this book. It has some good sections but the believability of it all became a bit farcical and there were a few plot errors along the way.

Reasonable but not a patch on the Genesis Secret.

Format: Paperback
I had purchased a couple of paperback copies of this author's books cheaply from Amazon to take away as holiday reading and I am glad that I did not pay the full retail price.

The storyline was good, the historical background well researched and the fictional elements well linked thoughtout for the most part but was wasted because of the sub-standard writing in places and some of the glaring errors in reality which could easily have been avoided but gave the story a rather amateur feel.

I really wanted to like this book and persevered to the end because the theory behind the story was basically very good and could have been better developed into a really enthralling tale, but this offering was just not up to scratch.

Fascinating and gripping race through the Basque Country.I didn't know anything about the Cagots before reading the book and was interested immediately in this unique race of people.Exploring the genetics made it very topical.I found the characters interesting and fairly believable,although Miguel was rather extreme!At times I found it very violent and scary.But altogether an exciting read in a unique setting.

Some interesting ideas but became sort of sluggish after a while and the characters were not very believable or engaging. Decided I didn't care what happened to any of them and didn't bother finishing it. Left it on a train though so hopefully someone else will pick it up and enjoy it as other reviewers seem to have done.

Format: Paperback
A plot pretty much akin to an Enid Blyton book. I thought that Genesis Secret was bad enough but Mr Knox has gone over the top with this one. Do all his books involve references to inter-species mating? A bit worrying really. Would love to see the helicopter that can fly from Namibia to Amsterdam and would be very interested to discover when Gaelic Psalm singing (or Gaelic language for that matter)started in Foula !!
A juvenile read at best.

I have never read this author before but really enjoyed this book. The book was written from two perspectives and that gave it extra depth. Some unexpected twists and turns right up to the end. Would definitely read another of this author's books.

By Chris Graham on 19 Jun 2013
Format: Hardcover
Tom Knox has called upon biblical texts, Nazi experiments to prove Arayan superiority, the Inquisition, closed societies in Spain, France, and Africa, plus Judaism and genetics, to provide fodder for this gripping story.

Excellent read.
